Women's 2020 Summer Bible Study
The Secret of Contentment by William B. Barcley
Wednesdays, 10 - 11:30 a.m., July 15 - August 19
6 Weeks - Bonnie Horner, Facilitator
Indoors in Lakeview Area, with appropriate safety precautions
The temptation to be discontented is everywhere, especially as we've recently been dealing with Covid-19. We are bombarded with advertisements telling us we are incomplete and unfulfilled. And yet the seeds of discontentment are already present in our own sinful hearts.
William Barcley addresses the heart of the matter -- the discontent that lies within. Based in the writings of Jeremiah Burroughs and Thomas Watson, he presents afresh these great Puritans' meditations on contentment for a modern audience. Above all, he seeks the wisdom of Paul, who declared in Philippians that he had found the "mystery" or the "secret" of being content.
Contentment must be learned, and Barcley reveals the secret, calling us to a contentment that comes from knowing God and delighting in his sovereign goodness and fatherly care.
Join us for this six-week study as we read and discuss our need for contentment. Of course, appropriate safety precautions will be taken for your safety.
Please PRE-REGISTER so Bonnie has enough books on hand for the first class. All are welcome, bring a friend. There is a $10 fee for the book, payable at class.
